I’m interested in using Jena (a Java-based Semantic Web framework)
via JRuby. The basic functionality of the API is already usable,
but I’d like to create a high-level wrapper that “rubifies” the
API to make it more pleasant to use.
Rich Kilmer has done some interesting work in this direction with
the HotCocoa wrapper (using MacRuby to access Cocoa’s Objective-C
APIs). Ernie Prabhakar is also using MacRuby to access the Grand
Central Dispatch API.
There is also some blogging on the general topic, including:
What makes a good API wrapper?
Writing APIs to Wrap APIs
Anyway, I’m hoping that someone can point me to some examples and
discussion of using JRuby wrappers to make Java APIs more Rubyish.
Comments, clues, and suggestions welcome!
